The Coach x Champion® Athleticwearcollection launches today with a campaign featuring model Paloma Elsesser and TikTok stars Wisdom Kaye, Maha Gondal and Jeffrey Tung, and photographed and directed by Alessandro Simonetti.
The limited-edition collaboration brings together two American icons, combining Coach’s distinct attitude and legacy of craftsmanship with Champion’s authority in authentic athletic apparel.
Featuring leather bags, leather jogger pants, sweaters, and shearling jackets printed with new branding that unites Coach’s storypatch, one of its house symbols, with Champion’s iconic C-logo, the collection reimagines the shared heritage of both brands with a fresh, modern lens.
To celebrate the new collection, Coach released a series of campaign images and “How to Coach a Champion” TikTok challenges.
The challenges star Wisdom Kaye, the platform’s most fashionable star, stylist Maha Gondal, known for advocating modest style, and Jeffrey Tung, singer, actor, and star of China’s “Idol Producer.”
In the campaign, the cast invites Coach and Champion fans to participate in a series of fun challenges inspired by Coach’s fashion authority and Champion’s expertise in athleticwear.
I’m excited to introduce Coach x Champion, a collection grounded in the authentic American heritage we share.
I was inspired by the idea of elevating sportswear silhouettes in an unmistakably Coach way using leather, shearling, and by combining our iconic symbols in a way that feels fresh, youthful, and immediate.
– Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers
The opportunity to partner with Stuart and the Coach team and merge the design expertise, as well as the great heritage of these two iconic American brands, is what was so inspiring.
To be able to pair Champion’s roots in sport with Coach’s exceptional craftsmanship creates the opportunity for Champion’s iconic styles to come to life through a new and elevated lens.
